Photo of a Workers International Relief Strikers Canteen in use during the Lancashire Cotton Strikes of the early 1930s
Workers’ International Relief (WIR), an initiative of the Comintern, was also active during the strikes in the Yorkshire and Lancashire textile industries in 1930. This picture was taken there. Jim Ancrum, a W.I.R. organiser during the strikes is standing on the right and wearing a cap.
